Estate Planning & Probate

Many wait until later in life before thinking about estate planning and probate matters.  However, careful consideration should be given to estate planning and probate maters regardless of age.  Kelly, Smith & Red reviews each client’s current estate planning status and makes recommendations for present and future estate planning.  We are available to advise and assist at all levels of estate planning and probate with services that cover a broad spectrum including drafting wills, creation of trusts, simple and complex estate planning, probate of wills, and representation of clients in estate and will contests.

In the event of a death, a will is the most commonly used legal instrument for the distribution of the deceased’s property.  Rules of interpretation or construction depend chiefly on decisions made by the courts.  In the event of a dispute or challenge of an estate matter, we will aggressively pursue the necessary actions to benefit our clients.  With our assistance, our clients are prepared to expedite the process of transferring assets to intended beneficiaries.  Whether it is assistance with estate plans, trusts, or probate disputes, our experienced team is dedicated to helping you.
